Strategies for Effective Pain Management in Clinical Practice
Charles E. Argoff, MD, FABPM | Oscar A. de Leon-Casasola, MD | Katherine E. Galluzzi, DO, CMD, FACOFP
The nation is facing competing public health issues: the need to treat a large number of Americans with acute and chronic pain vs the crisis of prescription opioid abuse. Pri-Med’s Strategies for Effective Pain Management in Clinical Practice curriculum focuses on improving practitioners’ ability to recognize, diagnose, and classify pain; educating clinicians on the full spectrum of pain management options, including nonopioid pharmacologic interventions; and providing risk reduction strategies through integration of opioids into individualized pain management plans. Clinicians will learn to recognize signs and symptoms of opioid dependence and abuse in order to optimally manage patients’ pain and medication use.
